Ed Stewart makes radio history this week by climbing Britain's two highest peaks - Mount Snowdon and Ben Nevis - for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. The Trust runs regular Ben Nevis climbs and occasional Three Peaks walks, taking in Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis - but this is the first time climbs like this have been broadcast live. Ed starts his week by tackling Snowdon. Join him along the Pyg Path as he struggles to the 3,560ft summit.
Sheila Tracy presents the first of two special concerts recorded at the Civic
Theatre, Leeds, as part of this year's Leeds
International Festival of Music. The BBC Big Band and their musical director
Barry Forgie are joined by jazz guitarist Martin Taylor.

A Unique Broadcasting production
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
